The February winners were My Father Comes Back – by Steve Klepetar (Readers’ Choice) and A Bedside Geranium – by Tristan Moss (Editor’s Choice, picked by Winston Plowes). Winston’s comments re his choice can be found here.

Winston passes the Guest Editor mantle to Oz Hardwick, who will be picking the winning poem for March.

Oz is a York-based poet, photographer, music journalist, and occasional musician. His work has been published and performed internationally in all manner of media: books, journals, record covers, programmes, fabric, with music, with film, and with nothing but the reverberation of air. To make best use of life-long insomnia, Oz is also Professor of English at Leeds Trinity University, and has written extensively on misericords and animal iconography in the Middle Ages under the pseudonym of Paul Hardwick. His sixth poetry collection, The House of Ghosts and Mirrors, will be published by Valley Press in 2017. Find out more at: www.ozhardwick.co.uk
